Team Canada winner

TED WYMAN -- Winnipeg Sun

, Last Updated: 12:19 PM ET

This week featured the culmination of many months of speculation, barroom arguments and family squabbles over who should and shouldn't be on Canada's men's hockey team for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. Hockey Canada finally whittled its list of 81 names down to 26 (23 on the roster and three on the taxi squad). We asked our readers to start sending in their submissions near the end of October, long before Mario Lemieux or Steve Yzerman pulled out of the race, which certainly made this a challenging venture for the players who got their entries in early. In total, we received 70 entries and here's the amazing thing about it: the very first person to submit a roster is our winner. Glenn Rolfe sent out his vision of Team Canada on Oct. 22 and got 19 correct players. Five other players tied him at 19, but our Hit Parade prizes always go to the first person to get the correct answer. Rolfe wisely left Lemieux and Yzerman off his roster and missed just these four -- Marty Turco, Shane Doan, Kris Draper and Ryan Smyth. Tying Rolfe at 19 were (in order of submission date): Barry Saunders, Matthew Ring, Louis Adamson, David Carroll and Robert Guest.

Rolfe will receive a prize package which includes books, CDs and apparel.

Thanks to everyone for participating.
